    Luckily I had no idea what it was until someone posted it here once before. If anyone ever yells it at me at a show there's no telling what I might do to them. I may have to "slappa dah face mon".

    It's so true - Air bass DOES work better at mid - gut to lower chest level. But maybe that subject should be its own forum.

    I love it when she says that he sounds like a leprechaun, and he says it did sound like Borat. :D:D:D

    My favorite part of that scene is when he hypes up Rush and then plays "Limelight" on those crappy computer speakers.
     
  7. Hmm... Maybe knowing what show/movie that was in would make it funny?

    Honestly, I have no idea who those people were, and I sincerely hope that I never do.

    Like any joke, you either get it or you don't. It doesn't matter who the people are and what the movie is. It DOES help to understand it if you are a bass player and/or a fan of Rush. ;)

    whoever that is used to be funny, the first couple of times I saw movies where he played exactly the same guy as the movie before he was funny. Now after about 167 movies of him playing exactly the same guy as the movie before he annoys the liven s--t out of me.

    And I wanna "puncha da s--t out you face, mon" when I hear that crap.

    Wow. Never saw that one. If you're a Rush dude, it doesn't get much better. :D
